Netflix star Gillian Anderson swamped with fans racy fantasies on social media

Sex Education star Gillian Anderson has been swamped with fans' racy fantasies on social media, after posting a call out for her new book.

The X-Files icon, 54, plays therapist Dr Jean Milburn in hit Netflix series Sex Education and is set to release a new book called Dear Gillian.

Described as having "the potential to be a generation-defining exploration of women and sex", the Hollywood star asked her 2.5million Instagram followers to share their most secret X-rated thoughts with her for the book.

She told her fans to "let your imagination run wild", adding that her own fantasies would be in the book "right there beside yours".

Fans submitted their racy fantasies from all across the world following the call out, with the Sex Education actress speaking about the book for an article in The Guardian.

She said: "Let’s create an era-defining text that cuts right to the heart of what it is to be a woman today.

"A book that will hopefully inspire women for generations to come."

She added at the time: "I will, of course, be including my own letter, anonymously. I look forward to reading yours."

Submissions closed on February 28, 2023, but Gillian has thanked fans for their contributions, saying: "We’ve been truly amazed by the response — from Nepal to the Netherlands, Bangladesh to Brazil, Algeria to America.

"This book has the potential to be a generation-defining exploration of women and sex.

"Thank you for trusting me with your deepest desires."

Dear Gillian will be published by Bloomsbury books, with a release date still to be announced.

As part of the launch, Gillian is set to donate £500 to charity for every letter published in the book, which will be split equally between War Child and Women for Women International.

Publisher Bloomsbury are also donating £50,000 to Women for Women International.
